Let's say you buy one share of Apple for 400. Now lets say they do a 1-10 reverse split bring your share total to 10 at 40 dollars each. Now as Apple continues their (microsoft-esque) growth, and investors buy at that attractive price, it goes up to 400 in a year and a half. You now have made 4,000 dollars (3,600 actually). Now let's say they do another Microsoft-esque 1-10 reverse split in 2 years and it does the same thing in another 2 years. Your total profit comes out to 39,600 with just two r/s in 4 years.
Microsoft did this several times. Apple is bigger than they were.
I am now a dumber person by reading this string of posts. Optimismic, u should never post again. You will do AAPL and AAPL's shareholders better if you just hold your shares and not speak. You are not comparing apples to apples nor do you have any solid understanding of finance. If AAPL "prints more shares" that will dilute yours making yours less valuable because there would be more supply. Now when you say "print" if you are referring to split then, yes, you would own more shares due to a split, not a reverse split, which you continue to refer to. Now if you owned 10 times more shares because of a split, then Apple would have 10 times more shares trading hands. In essence it would take a dump truck of massive bidding to move the shares a buck. To put it simply, you are wrong. If you one share of Apple today, there is no way on god's green earth that the share would be worth 40k anytime soon. Also you are comparing the second largest company on earth by market cap about to take over XOM as number 1 to the infancy stages of Microsoft. Why not compare the Atlantic Ocean to my pool while your at it. Sure I can add to my pool and make it bigger. The Atlantic Ocean is already taking up a quarter of the earth. Try making that 40 times bigger. rarely post but had to comment on this one. hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaahaha. funny. Don't mean to be mean. honestly. but don't act so confident whe you don't know jack and your dead wrong.
besides knowing the difference between a split and R/S, you need to know about markets and market trends and market share. We are in the gr8 growth period now, when it is over, they will most likely become like MSFT or INTC, and splits will become very rare if ever again

Don't forget about knowing the difference between market trends and market MOVERS. Yes, right now is the time for the splits and/or buybacks/dividends.
Imagine one 2-1 split to 200 followed by a buyback of shares after it goes back up to 400. It would go to 800. Than a 4-1 split down to 200, announcement of dividends, back up to 600, then an announcement of a 1-10 split like Sachs and you are at 60 headed up to the hundreds and riches all with JUST ONE SHARE.
No it wouldn't because they'd be printing up more shares. Market cap is shares x price so if they did 9 splits at 1-2 like Microsoft, the price would fluctuate accordingly. Granted, the price each time would double, but the actual market cap would only be 100 times its current market cap.
I'm incredibly stupid? Microsoft did 9 r/s in a 7 year period when investors were buying up their shares. 7 of them were 2/1 and 2 were 3/2. The math has them at a 200 timer from the first split to the last split.
All I'm asking for is a 100 timer in the next five years with a company growing faster (investment wise) than Microsoft ever dreamed of. I am not stupid, I'm long shorty.
